Forecast Failure Modes


(a) Document and assess continuously throughout the Product Lifecycle all potential failure modes that can be identified through - (i) researching past failures; and/or (ii) interrogating all components or product and context with an open mind; (b) rank identified failure modes according to likelihood and severity; (c) prepare for and mitigate these risks as far as is reasonably practical in order of risk throughout the Product Lifecycle.


To (a) reduce harmful consequences of failures through anticipation and preparation; and (b) highlight associated risks that might occur in the Product Lifecycle.
